Be Happy or I'll Scream!: My Deranged Quest for the Perfect Husband, Family, and Life : This book is for every married woman who has found just the tiniest bit of disconnect between the image of a perfect family in her head - think The Brady Bunch - and the evidence in front of her eyes. Instead of darling and compliant rosy-cheeked children and an adorably tolerant husband ready to go along with zany shenanigans, most women are faced with: kids who view family outings with all the enthusiasm of hardened inmates forced to bust rocks in roadside Alabama and a man who would trade every last one of her kooky ideas for a just a teeny little bit more sex and a hot meal on the table at six. Sheri Lynch is a superb humorist of modern marriage, mores, and motherhood. Her take on what life is really like inside a marriage - as opposed to what it looks like on the holiday card version of same - will ring both wacky and true to any woman who was ever foolish enough to dream of the perfect marriage and family.
